This cemetery is well off Rice Road on property owned by Jimmy Massengil.
The surrounding rock wall has fallen in 2-3 places and when visited in Dec 2009 could be accessed by horses.
The area nearby the cemetery has a fair amount of junked appliances, discarded metal and containers, etc.

There are two rows of probably graves, with three in the first row and four in the second.
Five of the graves are marked with inscribed stones and footstones. One grave in the second row has a shaped fieldstone headstone.
Three of the inscribed stones are the children of JG & Jane Jordan. The other two are likely their grandparents, George and Martha Jordan.
